Air New Zealand Makes Christmas Great Again with New Christmas Ad

Christmas Ad from Air New Zealand

'The Nicest Christmas Ever' shows Air New Zealand flying to the rascals' rescue, assembling an International Naughty Kids Summit to tackle the threat of empty stockings.

What happens when Santa accidentally e-mails the naughty list out to a random child in New Zealand?It prompts a delegation of little darlings to pledge better behavior – but when talks stall with the US representative, it falls to New Zealand to save the season.

More than 300 children of Air New Zealand employees auditioned to take part in the clip, with 17 selected to star as extras alongside the airline's ground and cabin crew. Santa makes an appearance, as well as "Noel" the elf from last year's Air New Zealand Christmas video.

Air New Zealand General Manager Global Brand and Content Jodi Williams say the airline has a reputation for poking fun and wanted to inject some Kiwi humor into Christmas celebrations.

"From childhood memories of writing to Santa, through to the drama of a festive tech fail, the heartwarming video plays on silly season moments in a very Kiwi way."

"Showcasing our people is a hallmark of Air New Zealand's brand campaigns and it was fantastic to be able to share the limelight with more of the Air New Zealand family this time."
